Roof Rack Installation
Ensuring that your roof rack is secure on top of your vehicle is vitally important to ensure the safety of your vehicle and its passengers, as well as protecting what you are looking to transport. Cars and vans come in a number of different sizes and designs meaning that installing a roof rack can differ between vehicles. Some car brands already have open rails on the roof of their car at either side that have been fitted by the manufacturer, which can make fitting a roof rack a little simpler as you may not need additional feet for the roof rack to help it attach on to your car.
Generally, roof racks come as part of a set, with a rack plus the fixtures and fittings required to attach it safely to your vehicle, as well as instructions on how to do this. Fitting a roof rack can take time and precision, however, and you must be sure of what you are doing and double-check that the roof rack is secure before attaching any items to it.
If this all seems a little bit overwhelming, do not worry, as here at Wez Morrell, we can also provide roof rack installation so that you can be rest assured that your roof rack is secure and ready to use in no time.

Frequently asked questions
What's the difference between a roof rack and roof bars?
While these two phrases can sometimes be used interchangeably, there is a difference between the two products. Roof bars, sometimes known as crossbars, are two long bars that go across your car roof. Roof racks, are sturdier, have more crossbars and come as a more modular design.
How will a roof rack affect your vehicle handling?
As you can imagine, adding a metal roof rack to your roof, no matter how lightweight it is can slightly affect the way that your vehicle drives. When you add items on top of this onto your roof rack, your car can become even heavier, changing how aerodynamic your car is and the way it moves through the air. This can make steering your car and turning corners slightly more difficult. Therefore, before driving a long distance, we recommended completing a test drive with a full roof rack to get used to the different ways of steering and maneuvering your vehicle.
Are roof racks safe?
Yes, roof racks are safe if you follow the guidelines from the manufacturer, and ensure that it is correctly installed to your vehicle. That is why we at Wez Morrell offer Roof Rack installation as part of our services, to give our customers peace of mind. Each individual roof rack will have a maximum weight for safety – which is usually between 34 and 115kg depending on the model. It is important that you stick to this weight limit for health and safety reasons.
What can you attach to roof racks?
Roof racks are designed to carry additional items that may be too big for the boot of your car, or too long to fit inside your vehicle at all. Some of the common items that are carried on roof racks include building supplies, bikes, surfboards, skis, kayaks or even just a large luggage store.
